This One was for Muddy; Hillsdale Rallies to Upend Ferris State

Official Press Release
Hillsdale College

Sept. 23, 2006 - It was the kind of football Saturday that would have made Frank "Muddy" Waters smile.

One of the teams he used to coach, Saginaw Valley, pulled out a dramatic win Saturday. The team he started his career with, Hillsdale College, got a much-needed victory in front of a soaked, but enthusiastic home crowd, 29-27 Saturday night.

The win improves Hillsdale to 2-2 overall and in the GLIAC on the season, while the Bulldogs were sent to their first defeat of the campaign, and are now 3-1 and 2-1 in the conference.

Waters passed away Wednesday morning at the age of 83. The Hillsdale players wore "Muddy" stickers on their helmets, and the coaching staff wore "Muddy" buttons to remember the legendary coach. Although the new ProGrass artificial surface turf didn't get muddy, the steady mist of rain added atmosphere to an already dramatic evening.
